The Trek Verve+ has solid components and added features like included Fenders and LED riding lights. However, if you want a lot of the same features and performance, Izip E3 Moda Has you covered. The bike goes 28mph, making it a perfect commuter. 4 piston brakes provide confidence-inspiring braking, thru axle lends to nimble feeling and Schwalbe Super Moto-X provides exceptional ride quality and cushioning effect. With 100whr more battery capacity than the Trek and a whole list of other features, this bike provides a LOT of the value.
